Happy Friday everyone!! Welcome to another round of new releases. And we have a lot for you whether you like country, jazz, indie, disco, r&b, metal and even good old rock & roll. As a result, there is something for everyone and I hope you find something. I have a few I want to hear and two I have on pre-order and can’t wait to get my hands on them. Those are marked in Blue. Let me know what you are interested in and what I may have missed. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Jeff Scott Soto – The Duets Collection, Vol. 1 – (Frontiers Records): One of my favorite lead singers and he is back with yet another release this year. This time around it is a compilation but not the normal type. This is his greatest hits, redone as duets with some of his favorite people. He is covering songs from his solo career and a ton of bands he has been in over the years. It should be awesome, but I can’t review it. Nope. Well, not until I get to it some time next year when I do the Jeff Scott Soto Series. Over 65 albums in this series and it will be epic!!
The Wild Feathers – Alvarado – (New West Records): Here is another favorite artist of mine. These guys are a little country, a little southern rock and a whole lot of awesome. This one is on order to complete my vinyl collection of the band but won’t be here until around the 29th of the month. I can’t wait to dive in to this one.
Another Friday is upon us and I am glad you made it through another week. I am sure my kids are glad it is Friday as well since they started school this past week. It is a different type of school for them now thanks to COVID. But one thing that hasn’t changed is Friday is new release day. There is a lot here this week, but there isn’t at the same time. There is one I am looking forward to and one I will give a spin as it looks interesting and they are both marked in Blue. Let me know what you are excited about and what I may have missed. Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!!
The Lemon Twigs – Songs for the General Public – (4AD Ltd): I know nothing about this band, but the album cover with them dressed very glam like has made me interested in spinning this one. I need something new, so hopefully this will satisfy that craving.
The Killers – Imploding the Mirage – (Island Records): This album got bounced around so much due to Covid, I lost track of the release date and missed having it as a featured cover on the header. However, this is the main one I would want to hear this week. Sorry this was added late, but it has been added.
Happy Friday! I hope there are some new releases here that you might like. There is not a whole lot coming out, but a few will be on my list to listen to during the week. I will highlight those in Blue. You will see something from the Jerry Garcia Band for you Deadheads and if you liked Soft Cell from the 80’s there is a greatest hits package from Marc Almond. There is an album by the great country artist Marty Stuart that actually might be worth a listen, but isn’t first up on my list. I will eventually get to that one.
Chickenfoot – Best + Live – (Chickenfoot LLC & Entertainment One): I am not sure how you have a Best of album after only 2 studio albums, but Chickenfoot seems to think they need one. I am thinking it is a contractual obligation they have to fulfil. I will be glad for the Live songs and the one new single “Divine Termination”. No matter what, when you have Sammy, Joe, Chad & Michael together, you are in for a good time.
Bush – Black and White Rainbows – (Zuma Rock Records): Bush is still going strong. This is the first album for Gavin Rossdale since his well publicized divorce from Gwen Stefani. It will be interesting to see how that impacted his song writing for this album. Can’t wait to hear this one regardless of that fact.
